    Dead centre of the image, between Raw Chocoalte and Japanese Horseradish (Wasabi).
    You'll also see Green Soybean and Corn Pottage Soup on the top row.

    And for real fun and games, check the top right hand corner.

    Eww. Also, I stand corrected.

    I don't think that would taste very good.

    I see this is speaking as someone who has read neither Archie vs the Punisher or Archie vs Predator. =)

    I've read Archie on n off since I was a kid.

    I have already admitted to not being familiar with Predator IF you'd bother to read any of my posts instead of cherry-picking. All I know is that its an alien with dreads who hunts anything that will fight back. Nice try though. :D

    I've tried a few on that board. Wasabi and Corn Soup. Wasabi was surprisingly good because it was mainly vanilla with a touch of burn. Corn was just... sweet corn taste, nothing great. I wouldn't touch Whitebait with a bargepole and the mustard doesn't interest me either way.
    Japan does other strange food crossovers that sometimes fail horribly, sometimes are amazing. Chocolate ramen, soy sauce Kit Kats, potato croquettes with ice cream.

    But just like the TF/MLP crossovers they all start life as novelties and gimmicks. Something a bit silly, a bit ridiculous. But what what makes them work, again, is the competency of the creator and the open-mindedness of the consumer.

    Some people will just straight up NOPE the TF/MLP. I saw plenty of people, Japanese and not, totally flip out at Whitebait ice cream (many of those flavours aren't normal for Japanese either). But there would always be a few that we're willing to try something weird, silly and ridiculous and go from there.

    Yeah, who would think that the director of an Oscar-nominated film would be able to produce something of quality. That would just be so silly.

    If you say so. I don't care much for wasabi myself. I don't think I could try all those other flavors. All those other things you mentioned just no.

    I knew about the Punisher but Predator?

    My god, how did they even pull THAT one off without facehuggers and chest bursters? Oh wait, no, that's Alien...still, Predator doesn't exactly like humans so I'm still legitimately curious how the entire cast doesn't die horribly in that.

    Hey, you think he's a good writer, that's fine.

    AFAIC, well, let's just say I'm no fan of TLJ.

    Who said the cast DIDN'T die horribly? Pretty much everyone but Betty and Veronica bite the dust at the hands of the Predator. And even the girls give him a fate worse than death...

    Judging from the images (light/shadow, color and everything), those characters don't live in the same space indeed.

    As both a huge Transformers fan and a devout Brony I endorse this with all my being.

    Most of the time I've seen a horse or pony they are with a truck. So I guess this crossover makes sense.
